We've been hearing a lot of rumours about OnePlus launching a new smart band over the last few weeks. The OnePlus Band was first tipped last week and then was officially teased by the company a few days later. This week, we've heard more about the band, with a recent report also revealing details about the features of the upcoming wearable companion app.
Now ahead of its launch, the OnePlus Health app has been spotted on the Google Play Store giving us a hint about the design of the OnePlus Band but also giving us a look at OnePlus Watch faces.
As AndroidPolice points out in its report, the OnePlus Health app shares a lot of similarities with Oppo's HeyTap health app. However, as mentioned above, the most interesting thing about the app, for now, is that it shows off faces for the onePlus Band and the OnePlus Watch. While there is no news on the latter, we do know quite a lot about the former already.
Earlier, details about the OnePlus Band had leaked online. It is suggested that the Band will come with sleep tracking, real-time heart rate monitoring, and water resistance. Additionally, the OnePlus Band will also come with blood saturation monitoring features. All of this will be accessed through a 1.1-inch touch display, and the band will be kept alive using a battery that offers a 14-day battery life, and 13 exercise modes including Outdoor Run, Cycling, Cricket, Pool Swim, Yoga, and more.
Earlier, OnePlus Band's existence was also tipped by Android Central. In its report, the publication had claimed that the fitness tracker will be called the OnePlus Band and that it will precede the smartwatch that the company plans to launch in the coming months. The OnePlus Band is expected to serve as a competitor to the Xiaomi Mi Band series which is one of the most popular products in the segment.
As per the report, OnePlus Band will come with an affordable price of around $40 and in exchange bring with itself an OLED display, water resistance, and multi-day battery life as well as support for tracking basic fitness stats.
